    Hello! We will be visiting the Disney parks in a couple weeks. Can we still experience Batuu and other things Star Wars if we are unable to get a boarding pass for The Rise of the resistance? Do we need a pass to experience Batuu?

    Bright suns, Melissa!  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel on your way to the planet Batuu!  Are you ready to live out your very own Star Wars adventure at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge?  I would be happy to help you make the most of your visit to Batuu

    First of all, if you're hoping to experience the epic new attraction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, you should make sure that your entire party is inside Disney's Hollywood Studios before the park officially opens for the day.  Then as soon as the park opens, you will want to join a boarding group for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance using your My Disney Experience mobile app.  While the boarding group system is in place for this particular attraction, no boarding group is necessary to simply visit Batuu.

    It is worth noting that advanced reservations are recommended for Oga's Cantina, Droid Depot, and Savi's Workshop - Handbuilt Lightsabers, but guests are free to explore the rest of Black Spire Outpost at any time they wish.  If your group would like to take the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy for a spin, you may also enter the standby queue for Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run at any time.  Be sure to check out the adventure a few of my fellow panelists had during a recent mission aboard the Falcon.

    In addition to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, there are many other ways to experience the Star Wars universe during your visit to Disney's Hollywood Studios.  Be sure to catch some new scenes from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker at Star Tours - The Adventures Continue, and stop by Star Wars Launch Bay to meet some of your favorite characters from a galaxy far, far away.

    May the Force be with you!
